Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate for the second time after July 21 for questioning in a money laundering case associated to the National Herald newspaper.

However, this inquiry prompted her party to hold protests against the alleged misuse of central agencies by the current BJP government. Police has maintained heavy security arrangements as Sonia Gandhi reached the federal agency’s office in central Delhi around 11 am. She was accompanied by Z+ armed security and both children Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. While Priyanka Gandhi just like last time stayed back at the ED office, Rahul Gandhi left soon after.

Soon Rahul led Congress MPs at a protest in Vijay Chowk, close to the Rashtrapati Bhavan, and was detained by police and has been taken to Parliament Street police station. He allegedly said that ‘India a police state, Modi a king’.

The questioning and recording of the 75-year-old Congress president’s statement begun at 11:15 am after preliminary formalities, including the verification of summons and signing the attendance sheet, were finished.
